One week of family time in Akumal Sur, Mexico
Our family of 8 enjoyed a week a Casa Playa del Caribe in Akumal Sur Mexico, approximately 1 hour 20 minutes south of Cancun airport. The home is in a private gated road a little south of Akumal Village. The home took us some time to locate when we first arrived. The water directly in front of the house is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, SUP-boarding, kayaking, reading, and general fun beach time. Akumal village with a general store, restaurants, shopping, and a dive shop are about a 35 minute walk to the north along the beach, or a 5 minute car ride. Almost all parking in Akumal village is paid parking.
At the house, we especially found value in the quiet and privacy of the section of the beach in front of the house. The four large bedrooms and spacious bathrooms are very comfortable. Everyone in our family rested very well each night. It was good to have A/C in the bedrooms on the warmer nights with higher humidity.
February in Akumal Mexico provided us with perfect weather for our winter break from the cold Northeast U.S. February. The on-site caretakers, Mercedes and Pancho, are delightful, and provide, almost daily, care and love for the home.
Thank you for the nice review Bill. I've updated my directions to the home for future guests. Thank you for the information.
Difficult to leave!
We were a party of 4 adults and 4 kids ages 7-16 and we stayed at Casa Playa del Caribe for a week in Feb of 2020. It was a wonderful experience! The house is in great shape - even nicer than the photos suggest. There is plenty or room for everyone to spread-out and the AC works great in all 4 bedrooms. Ceiling fans and the sea breeze keep things cool everywhere else. The kitchen is well stocked. I've stayed at more than 20 rental vacation homes in the past 10 years and this is the FIRST one with sharp knives! The caretakers (Pancho and Mercedes) are terrific and keep the house and grounds in great shape. Mercedes is also a great cook. The pool is wonderful to have, although the bay is the main attraction. The town of Akumal is only a 15-20 min walk north on the beach, but I probably wouldn't want to do it at night because the footing can get tricky in a couple of parts. Overall it was an outstanding vacation and we would enthusiastically recommend this house and the Akumal location to people looking for a relatively quiet ocean-centric getaway.
Thank you so much for the great review! I'm so glad to hear that you and your group had a nice time. Please come visit us again!
I almost don`t know where to begin......it really is that nice. The feeling of seclusion with your own private piece of beach is just outstanding. The house is clean, well stocked and precisely as advertised. It also has a very inviting "feel" to it......hard to explain but if you book a stay here you will understand. A 30 minute walk on the beach (north) gets you to town and a number of good restaurants, not to mention a grocery store. Get some exercise, enjoy the ocean breeze and then take a cab back ($15). If you don`t want to cook then let Pancho and Mercedes handle that for you as their availability is seemingly endless. Taxi service is easily available for those who choose not to rent a car. Watch pelicans diving for food in the mornings and afternoons. If your desire is to have dining and shopping (and the crowds that come with those things) around the corner then this may not be the best place for you but if the goal is spending some time together with others in a quiet, safe and beautiful environment then your search is over......book it and be done!
Almost forgot, communicating with Brittany could not be easier.......she is outstanding!
Perfect for large families or groups!
If you’re looking for peace and quiet, then look no further. You have the beach and virtually the entire cove to yourself. Snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding from your own private beach. Poncho and Mercedes are wonderful and cool amazing meals, which we highly recommend. The outer reef breaks the waves so the surf is very gentle and the pool has a shallow shelf that is perfect for small children. The only negative is the amount of coral that washes up on the beach that limits the kids from playing in the surf.
Thank you for the nice review Cole! It was a pleasure to host you all at our home in Akumal! I hope that you will think of us again.
Best Beach in Akumal
This was our 4th time to Akumal in 10 years. This home is AMAZING! It is on the best beachfront in Akumal! This was extremely important to us...not rocky and no seaweed just pure white sand. You do need water shoes for the water as the coral can be hard to trek in bare feet. This was our family hangout for one week, our youngest being 4 and our oldest being 91! It has something for everyone. The pool was beautiful although a bit chilly. Pancho and Mercedes are fabulous. They are the caretakers and did everything from making sure the property was cleaned daily to grocery shopping for us. They did prepare some meals and snacks too! The neighborhood is very secure and guards roam the beach 24 hours a day. They are not intrusive in any way but gave us a feeling of extra comfort. Highly recommend! We will be back!
Thank you for the very nice review Jennifer! It was likewise great to host you and your group!
